for the eye: Nina Mae McKinney
in b sarong.—Voodoo has gone
ritzy. It is now called Vaudan.—
Lillian Yarbo and Eddie Anderhon
sepia members of the cast of, “You
Can’t Take It With You,” furnish |
a goodly portion of the hilarity
that makes the current movie ver
sion a side-splitting succes.
X marks The Spot: In San Jose, |
Calif., fatal traffic accidents are,
marked on the highway with a i
huge circle. Frank Wilson, star of!
“Porgy and Bess.” is the butler!
* in Clare Boothe’s “Kiss The Boys
Goodbye,” a current hit on broad
way. Something to worry this de
partment: The statement of Ber
nard M. Baruch to the effect that
the army can't protect the U. S. in

men of Fifth avenue, during a re
cent cor test.
THAT YELLOW BASKET
The Myrna Loy dog naming con
test has ended. The most unusual
feature of the entire contest, ac
cording to Mark Hellinger, was
‘‘more than 18,000 people in the
United States and Canada sugges
ed the names ‘Tisktt’ and ‘Tasket.’
MARIAN ANDERSON: Roland

away from Philly too long, will
sing at the Academy here, Jam fry

FLASHES OF TALK

Well, how trill are you with regular
